I went to Austin for 5 days, and stayed with my friend Diane. I've been so stressed out over my job, the economy, etc for so long that I think I had forgotten how to have fun. My darling friends Diane, Walt, and Freddy reminded me. I can't remember the last time I laughed like that. (or drank like that) There were some moments I'm not terribly proud of....in fact I think AC/DC might actually sue Kicky LaRue and I for damages to their song. Drunk karaoke is a tragedy for everyone involved. Yikes.
We met a lot of people at the Salt Lick, and despite the food being strange, at best, I really enjoyed all the new fun friends I met. I was really happy that Mandie, Melanie, Joe, Jack, Kim, and Curt came out to see us. Several friends of Freddy's came, too, including Kay, his ex-wife that we've heard of for so long. I didn't get a chance to talk to everyone as much as I would have liked to, but I suppose that's what happens when there are so many people.
I'm really happy that Joe and Jack got a hotel and stayed in Austin so we could hang out with them a little more. They really are sweethearts, and so funny, too!
So, I know I've given the total Cliffs notes version, and maybe I'll revisit and write some more, but it's bedtime now. I was just smiling and thinking about how much fun I had, and had to write a little something.
